FAQ

Ingredient & Nutrition Queries

1.       What is the difference between BLEND 43 and NESCAFÉ Gold?

Both NESCAFÉ BLEND 43 and NESCAFÉ Gold are instant coffees, the main difference is usually how the coffee beans are processed. BLEND 43 is made from a spray drying process where evaporation transforms liquid coffee into fine powder. Most of our NESCAFÉ Gold instant coffees are freeze dried (with exceptions of NESCAFÉ Gold Short Black & Smooth). With freeze drying, coffee extract is frozen to -40°C and cut into granules. As a result, the quality of the aroma and flavour is protected due to the low temperatures and gentle drying conditions. Our NESCAFÉ CAFÉ MENU and NESCAFÉ Gold café inspired sachets do not contain freeze dried coffee.

6.       What is the difference between Arabica and Robusta beans?

Arabica and Robusta are the two main types of coffee beans used to make coffee.

15.       Why does it say on your coffee products “best enjoyed within 4-6 weeks of opening”?

Once coffee has been opened and exposed to the environment the quality can slowly deteriorate. Coffee can lose its freshness, and, if coffee absorbs moisture, it can clump together making it undrinkable. Therefore, once opened, always store coffee in a cool, dry environment and it’s best to use within 4 to 6 weeks so that you get the best tasting cup of coffee!
